Our cream literally ‘rises to the top’! We never skim cream off of individual jars but rather, we separate the cream from extra milk, when it’s available. This is why there is always a limited amount of cream available for purchase. The skimmed milk then gets clabbered and fed to our pastured pigs to make the tastiest pork on the market. Each jar is dated on the day of milking/separating so you always know exactly how fresh your cream is.
Our Brown Swiss cows are on pasture 365 days per year. We rotationally graze them and they are moved once or twice daily to a fresh paddock of delicious greens. This ensures they are getting optimal nutrition to provide you with the best! They are also given fresh fruits & veggies when in season. And they have access to free-choice minerals and salt at all times.
Our cows are genetically tested for A2 genetics. To read more about A2 milk and why it is so much healthier, check out our blog post here.
CT Ranch uses reusable wide-mouth glass mason style jars for our dairy products. Jar trade is required or a $5/jar deposit will be charged at pickup.
The jar, lid & ring must be cleaned & sanitized before being brought to us as a trade. If not cleaned properly before being returned to us, they tend to harbor bacteria & mold growth, making them unusable for us to refill. Although we thoroughly clean and sanitize each jar before being filled, we take member safety very seriously and will not reuse jars, lids or rings that have been exposed to mold growth. Please help us keep everyone safe & wash those jars!
No jar credit will be given on jars that are returned dirty.
